Screening followed by a Q&A with Jazz Raycole, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Zoe Renee, Michelle Defraites, Jake Allyn and Sean Blakemore.
Moderated by TK Trinidad.
The Quad follows the ambitious yet secretive life of Eva, the newly elected President of Georgia A&M (an HBCU), her administration, and the entering freshman class. Our freshman are led by Sydney, Eva’s rebellious daughter, Cedric, a talented rapper on the come up, and Bojohn, who is looking to achieve victory and success as the school’s first white starting quarterback.
The staple of Georgia A&M is their prestigious marching band led by their charismatic yet ruthless leader, Art Diamond. Art’s power and influence proves a challenge to Eva but she manages to find strong allies in Ella Grace, Dean of the history department, and football coach, Eugene Hardwick.
Though the students and faculty of The Quad come from different places and face different challenges, one similarity remains—everyone is looking to make a name for themselves at Georgia A&M.
